The role and value of Sustainable IT in the circular economy

With a sustainable IT approach, purpose and profitability can work hand-in-hand. It eliminates the conflict between our fragile environment and an increasingly technologically demanding world,
and it opens the door to the potential of  technology becoming a sustainable  solution in its own right.

Download our eBook to learn more about how to integrate sustainability principles into how we design, source, procure, use and dispose of IT. You can also learn more from customers who have already started on this journey.

From here to zero

The world is starting to act at pace on climate change. People, planet and profit are finally being prioritised in the right order. Every operation must be reviewed – and IT is no exception. 

To help achieve Net Zero and Zero Waste ambitions, it’s time for leaders to ignite sustainable innovation; extend the lifespan of their technology and apply circular economy principles to IT. Because, frankly, it’s now or never.

Knowledge first. Planet first. Circularity First. 

The more we all understand sustainable IT and its benefits, the more it can help relieve the pressure on our planet and our businesses. 


Only 43% of leaders know their organisation’s IT carbon footprint.

We’ll help you reduce the carbon impact of your IT today.

From top to bottom

Sustainable IT is the design, manufacture and disposal of IT equipment with minimal impact on the environment. There are a number of different ways this goal is realised.

Use for longer

Use for longer The most sustainable option is the one you already have. Using analysis, forward planning, repair, and sparing to make in-life platforms run for longer.

(refurbished or remanufactured)

Authorised equipment has been refurbished or remanufactured and certified specifically by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). It has been restored to its highest utility and comes complete with full manufacturer warranties.


Hardware that has been fully deconstructed, checked and reconstructed with either reused or new parts. It is then rebuilt to the specifications of the original manufactured product. Every component is tested. The finished products look and work like new.


Used hardware which has been tested for defects and had damaged components replaced. Refurbished hardware is not necessarily returned to an ‘as new’ aesthetic condition.

Redeployed and reused

Often the technology has more life remaining than the current user needs. Once a technology is finished with, it can be redeployed and reused in different sectors.


The least attractive option. Recycling involves the repurposing of some materials from used IT equipment but, unlike in remanufacturing or refurbishment, materials waste most of the embedded energy and carbon during the recycling process. It does not have the ecological impact of refurbished or remanufactured technology.

Reduce data

Data has an environmental footprint in its creation, storage and use. A more sustainable approach to data starts with a review of what’s needed, what can be shared and what can be deleted, archived or repurposed.
